Forum: stock_footage Subject: Stockholm Vistas Continued

I have uploaded 3 new items in the series "Stockholm Vistas", which is ended thereby - it's getting too close to tourism propaganda, or lectures in the history of architecture:

http://www.archive.org/details/EvaVikstromStockholmVistasStockholmPublicLibraryandObservatory
http://www.archive.org/details/StockholmVistas-AlleysInOldTown

Could you move these 3 items to the Stock Footage section, please? - Then there will be 6 items altogether called "Stockholm Vistas" in the section.

Hello Eva. I just wanted to note that I am sorry to hear that you might stop posting these Vista clips. I see no propoganda, just real good footage. I think of them as time capsules. After over 30 years of photography I have found that much of what I have on tape and film no longer exists. Buildings, people, cities all change so quickly. I recently posted footage of alligators. Last week poachers went in and killed many of the alligators I had filmed. The Alligators are now history. Your footage has great value to me, the Archive, and many future editors who will use your footage for decades to come. I hope you will reconsider and let me see more of Stockholm. Thanks again for all the great footage you have shared.

Thanks for┬Ęthe kind note! - I don't intend to stop filming places and sights in Stockholm and to upload some of it, but the idea of a series felt somewhat tiresome when I found myself writing an inventory list of suitable objects, and when the tourist season started. So I will film what might turn up. As for me, I'm not quite new to photography, but to moving images. You must exercise to reach beyond the first shaky footage of kids and cats, and find more ways than putting up the camera and see what happens. It's great if these exercises are useful to others, especially students. I guess all movies of some public interest can be used as historical sources, and I hope to see more contemporary footage of what it looks like in America and elsewhere on this site.

What a shame that those alligators have been killed! Your footage shows them as dignified and lovable creatures. It belongs to the very best I've seen in the Internet Archive.

Eva

Glad to hear I misunderstood. Your Stolkholm footage has been very well done. I hope that someday the Archive can have current footage as good as yours from New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Chicago and much more. I am curious to see what city or country starts to post footage in the Archive next. I would love some snow footage from Alaska. Perhaps next year. Best wishes to you and Stockholm....Ivan
